Why should I create a course?
We can think of a numbers of reasons, but let’s start with three:
Still not convinced? Here’s what some of our course creators say:
Creating courses for Daily Bits Of is one of the most rewarding things I've done so far as an infopreneur - you get awesome personal guidance and pep talk along the way. I really advise anyone working with knowledge and education to use Daily Bits Of as a personal channel to reach people far and wide!
– Lina Bodestad, psychologist and speaker
Creating a course at Daily Bits Of was a fun, challenging and creative process. It made me think about what I wanted to communicate as a psychologist, researcher and author to help people understand themselves better. With help and a lot of encouragement from Daily Bits Of, I discovered what other people were interested in, and I got really inspired to teach others what I know.
– Alexander Rozental, PhD Student, Licensed psychologist, MSc
Daily Bits Of is a convenient way to summarize key lessons from my book, "Hooked: How to Build Habit Forming Products." The site has helped me reach a wider audience interested in learning more about my work.
– Nir Eyal, author of Hooked: How to Build Habit Forming Products
It has been wonderful having a course on Daily Bits Of - it is a great way for me to connect with students, share my content and expand my platform. They have been awesome partners!"
– Vanessa Van Edwards, Author & Behavioral Investigator at ScienceofPeople.com
How do I get started as an expert on Daily Bits Of?
It’s super easy! Just sign up here and start writing. Our course creating tool will help you craft the perfect micro-course. As a course creator, you’ll have access to our editors as well as to our invite-only Facebook community.
How can I earn money on Daily Bits Of?
Every day, we help experts earn money by selling their knowledge as bite-sized learning. How much you can make depends on the traction your course has. We pay between $1-1.5 for every student who signs up for your course.
What does it take to create a course?
Our courses are all about soft skills; our experts help people work smarter, live healthier and enjoy better relationships. Needless to say, this includes a lot of topics. We believe that everyone has something to teach. But you should have in-depth knowledge about the topic you want to teach.
Will you help me create a course?
Oh yes, like you wouldn't believe it.
Will I earn so much money that I can quit my day job?
That really depends on the life you want to live. In all honesty, no course creator has earned enough to live a comfortable life based solely on their earnings from our service.
With that said you should note that it doesn’t take a lot of time to write, market and maintain a course. All of our course creators agree that in terms of effort vs. reward hosting a course on Daily Bits Of is really worth it.
I love the idea, but I’m afraid what you will do with my content. Am I still in control?
Yes, you are. This means that you can at any time update, change or remove your course. Students who are currently taking one of your courses will get the chance to finish it even if you delete the course. But that’s only fair right?
As a course creator you participate in our marketing programs which mean that we will promote your course via channels such as Facebook, our newsletter and on our blog.
Can I get advice from people who have already created a course?
Yep, as a course creator you will get an invite to our growing community of experts filled with creatives, authors, TED-talkers and other such awesome people.
Can I write a course on anything?
Well, as we mentioned above, we want you to stick to soft skills that fall into categories such as work, career advice, family and relationship advice and ways to improve your physical and mental health. This is broad, but we still don’t accept courses on hard skills like programming and wood-cutting or topics such as foreign language or arts and crafts.
There are plenty of services that teach those subjects. Email our CEO and we’ll provide you with a few suggestions.
I hate FAQs! Can’t I just email my questions?
Looks like you also hate reading the beginning of pages :) Just email our CEO Niklas your questions. He loves to help!
Here are some questions we get a lot. If you can’t find your question on this list, we encourage you to send it to our CEO Niklas (friendly guy), and he’ll personally respond to it within 24 hours. Click here to email him.
Is it free to take the course?
Yes! But some of our courses fall into our paid membership plan which costs $10/month (country specific sales tax might apply).
Why should I become a paid member?
Well, here it goes: our arguments for why you should pay for content on the internet:
Paying for stuff on the internet? Why?
Yes, it might sound weird, but we want to contribute to a world where people can earn a living on the internet, instead of just becoming broke but famous. Our aim is to create a service that allows for anyone to keep on learning every day. This requires a lot of product development, editing and fact checking. As a member, you contribute to making learning more frictionless.
Your service sounds cool. Is it used by cool people?
We can honestly say that we have some of the coolest users the world has ever seen. Our course creators include best-selling authors, TED-talkers and budding experts. We have students from more than 92 countries. What they all have in common is a passion for learning new skills and being more curious than the average person.
Does this sound like you? If you become a Poweruser, you will get an invite to our super-secret learning lovers community which allow you to get friendly with our other users.
What happens if I don’t like a course?
Just unsubscribe from it and we’ll refund it. You have to promise to give us some feedback on how we can improve it.
Is it easy to stop using your service? Please be honest now!
Yes, no 30 clicks to reach the place to delete your account. That’s bullshit and we are not in the business of bullshit.
What happens with my personal data?
We don’t share your data with any third-party. The course creators will know who takes their course and we will know how our courses are performing. All our data is encrypted and anonymous.
I can’t find a course that suits me. What do I do?
Email our CEO Niklas, and he will search high and low for an expert how can create a course on the topic you are looking for.
Can I, an ordinary Joe Schmo, create a course?
Yes, but it should fall under personal development/soft skills.
I am a frustrated person who wants to direct my anger somewhere. Can you help me?
You came to the right place! We’re the kind of people who view all feedback as important data that can help us improve our service. Send your angry-email to our CEO and we’ll see if he can help you.
I still haven’t found what I’m looking for. What should I do now?
You are always welcome to email our support team. They usually reply within 24 hours.
